Classical Music – My Current Favourites

Becoming a fan of BBC Radio 3 has increased my appreciation of classical music, and about time, too.
I have always had a soft spot for Vaughan Williams, and his 5th symphony is just wonderful… as is the 3rd… as is Tallis… as is Lark Ascending…
Anyway, that said, I never thought I would be a fan of Bach’s Cello Suites. Solo cello? Absolutely wonderful.
And neither had I heard Mussorgsky’s PIctures at an Exhibition as solo piano, the original in fact, before it was orchestrated by Ravel.
It all goes to show that there are always more world’s to be revealed. All you have to do is look.
